I don't know if you "do" rumors, but as such things go, this is interesting. Is there something to it, or is it elaborate fantasizing?
Compare it to my D3 post, below.
I have to mention that several of the more arcane details match up with intelligence I heard from a completely different source. Fascinating. Don't forget to take it cum grano salis (with a grain of salt).
For the record, I'm not an insider, don't have a connection to Nikon, and am not under any NDA (non-disclosure agreement).
If you don't do rumors, we now return to our normal programming.
